Although the Cook County Department of Public Health and the Cook County Environmental Control Department are responsible for ensuring quality environmental health for Cook County residents, the Village of Schaumburg has been closely monitoring reports and recommendations from local, state, and national health agencies regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and has developed this webpage to keep the community informed with the latest updates.
Schaumburg village officials have been in regular communication with state and county health officials on preparations and precautions regarding COVID-19. In addition, village staff have been meeting to review emergency operations plans and discuss response activities based on current circumstances and future potential.
The Village of Schaumburg is committed to providing updated information as it becomes available during this evolving situation. As health officials learn more about COVID-19, the overall consensus is to be aware, be prepared, stay informed and practice healthy habits and preventable actions:
- Wash your hands often
- Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid contact with sick people
- Stay home if you are sick
- Cover mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
In addition, if you feel sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing or if you have been in contact with someone confirmed with COVID-19, please call your healthcare provider and notify them of your symptoms and any recent travel. Your healthcare provider will determine if you need to be seen in the office and if so, will provide special instructions to prevent exposing others.
The Village of Schaumburg will continue to update this COVID-19 webpage as additional information and guidance is obtained by health officials.
